Councillor Ross Willmott - Regular Other Disclosable Interest - Although not a member of the Commission, Councillor Willmott declared an Other Disclosable Interest in agenda item 9, “Planning Enforcement Performance”, for transparency, in that he was Chair of the Belgrave Hall Conservation Society, which had liaised with officers about concerns regarding the lack of enforcement action taken in certain situations. This interest was considered to be relevant to the meeting’s discussions and so did not preclude Councillor Willmott from addressing the Commission at the invitation of the Chair.
Councillor Gurinder Singh Sandhu - Disclosable Pecuniary Interest - Councillor Sandhu declared a pecuniary interest in agenda item 11, “Workplace Parking Levy”, in that his wife owned a property in the Cultural Quarter. Councillor Sandhu advised that, due to the nature of his interest, he would withdraw from the meeting during consideration of this item.
Councillor Hemant Rae Bhatia - Regular Other Disclosable Interest - Councillor Rae Bhatia declared an Other Disclosable Interest in relation to agenda item 11, “Workplace Parking Levy”, in that his wife worked at Leicester University. In accordance with the Council’s Code of Conduct, this interest was not considered so significant that it was likely to prejudice Councillor Rae Bhatia’s judgement of the public interest. He therefore was not required to withdraw from the meeting during consideration of this item.
